It's that time of year again: peanuts, Cracker Jacks and baseball.
As Major League Baseball kicks off its 2015 season, ticket prices are more expensive than ever. And you may be surprised by which teams' tickets are going for top dollar.
According to secondary ticket site TiqIQ, the average cost to attend an MLB game this year is $83. On the primary market—buying tickets directly from the teams—prices are cheaper, averaging $29 per ticket. That said, the price represents a 3.3 percent increase from last year's price and the biggest percentage increase since 2009.
Combine that with some beer, a hot dog and parking, and you could be paying an additional $25 or more, according to data compiled by Team Marketing Report, a sports marketing data firm.
For a family of four to attend a game with average-price tickets, two small draft beers, four small soft drinks, four regular-size hot dogs and parking, the average cost is $211—Cracker Jacks not included!
So, which teams' tickets cost the most on the secondary market? The Boston Red Sox retained the top spot. The average ticket on TiqIQ to see Red Sox at Fenway is $120, which is actually 17 percent cheaper than last season.
